To Follow Or To Lead

In a recent NCAA cross-country championship held in Riverside, California, 123 of the 128 runners missed a turn. One competitor, Mike Delvaco, stayed on the 10,000 meter course and began waving for fellow runners to follow him. Delvaco was able to convince only four other runners to go with him. Asked what his competitors thought of his mid-race decision not to follow the crowd, Delvaco responded, "They thought it was funny that I went the right way." Delvaco was one who ran correctly. In the same way, our goal is to run correctly, to finish the race marked out to us by Christ. We can rejoice over those who have courage to follow, ignoring the laughter of the crowd. "I have fought a good fight, I have finished my course, I have kept the faith: Henceforth there is laid up for me a crown of righteousness..."(II Timothy 4:7-8)
